Tuesday's Tip - Statistics Report (Beginner)

TT - Statistics Report

Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.

Statistics Report (Beginner)

Legacy's Statistic's Report is a great way to see all kinds of interesting information in your file like who the oldest person was, which couple was married the longest, what is the most common given name, etc. However, you can also use the Statistics Report as an additional data error checker. You will see things here that the other built in error checkers won't pick up because of the nature of the problem. There are some things the other error checkers would pick up if you were entering your data, but if your data came in as a gedcom import, those errors were already made and Legacy won't readily see them (things like people being 256 years old).

To open this report, go to Reports > Statistics Report. This one is right on the Ribbon. You can also find it by going to Tools > Statistics, again, it is right on the Ribbon.

Here are two examples of errors:

Person is too old
(click image to enlarge)

 

Marriage is too long
(click image to enlarge)

This is a great double check for errors. It is easy to then open that person to see what is going on and fix the problem.

 

Find tech tips every day in the Facebook Legacy User Group. The group is free and is available to anyone with a Facebook account.

For video tech tips check out the Legacy Quick Tips page.  These short videos will make it easy for you to learn all sort of fun and interesting ways to look at your genealogy research.

5 Digital Collections to Explore for Women’s History Month

I love the Internet. What a great time to pursue our family history when we can easily explore, find, and study documents from around the world from the comfort of our homes. Lucky us. Unlike previous generations who may have been limited in what they could find due to travel restrictions, time, or even money, we have the opportunity to view digitized records that can shed light on all aspects of our ancestor's lives.

The following digital collections are some of my favorites but not because my foremothers are prominently mentioned. Just the opposite. They are my favorites because they allow me to learn more about their time period, what they may have  experienced, and provide me a better understanding of researching her life. Take some time to peruse the following websites and they might become some of your favorites as well.

 

Women Working,  1800-1930 from Harvard Library              

 

Working women homepage
                                                                                         

Though it's a relatively recent field of study, women's history is inscribed across all of the Harvard Library holdings gathered since 1638. I love that first sentence of this collection's  introduction. Women’s stories are everywhere and this collection proves that historically women weren’t just housewives. The online collection includes “over 650,000 individual pages from more than 3,100 books and trade catalogs, 900 archives and manuscript items, and 1,400 photographs.”

Click on the homepage's "Explore this Collection Online" button and you have the option to search or browse images that include magazines, pamphlets, and other materials. Limiting your Search by Creator/Contributors can help you to browse the collection. There’s so much to love here, one of my favorite collections has to do with Lydia Pinkham but  I also love perusing the many books and magazines that give perspective on working women’s lives.

 

Women’s History from the Library of Congress

Library of Congress

2020 marks the anniversary of American women receiving the vote which seems like a good time to learn more about the fight for suffrage (Did you know that women in some states had the vote decades before the 19th amendment but not all women had the right to vote once the amendment passed?). Library of Congress has quite a few historical suffrage collections that will help you better understand that fight.

 

She's Good Enough

Social history involves learning about our ancestor’s everyday life and one way to do that is through music. The Library of Congress had a suffrage music collection that can help you understand what was going on during the early 20th century. “She’s Good Enough To Be Your Baby’s Mother, She’s Good Enough To Vote With You” is one such song that provides some interesting insight to this era.

 

Duke University Libraries Digital Collections          

Duke University
                                                                                      

There’s a lot to like about the Duke University Libraries Digital Collections but for this post I want to focus on their Women’s Travel Diaries. Why is this important? Did your ancestor migrate, take a trip, or live somewhere you don’t? These diaries can shed some life on that time and location. “The diaries in this digital collection were written by British and American women who documented their travels to places around the globe, including India, the West Indies, countries in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, as well as around the United States. There are over 100 diaries of varying length.” You can browse or search for items of interest. I personally love reading period diaries that help me better understand what life was like for a previous generation.

 

Virtual Archives, Resource Guides and Databases from Nova Scotia Archives

Nova Scotia Archives

This digital collection is fantastic for all that it offers genealogists with Nova Scotia roots. Not you? That’s okay, check it out and then consider what an archive where your ancestor lived may have and then look for it! This one has digitized documents focusing on suffrage, women of Digby county, as well as a recipe collection, and Court for Divorce and Matrimonial Case Files 1759-1960.

I realize that most people reading this don’t have Nova Scotia ancestors but it’s a great example of what archives are adding to their websites and a reminder that we should look for archives in the region we are researching.

 

Feeding America from Michigan State University

Feeding America Simmons Book

Of course you knew there was no way we would get through a list without my mentioning one cookbook website?! And I love this one because it includes the first cookbook written by an American woman (Amelia Simmons) which sheds important light on what your early American ancestor was eating and what foods they had access to. (Be sure to read what she has to say about peacocks.) Seek out cookbooks in this collection for ideas about what foods and recipes your female ancestors would have been familiar with.

So those are some of my favorites. Try them and let me know what you find. I’d also love to hear about digital collections featuring resources on female ancestors that you have found.

 

Happy Women’s History Month!


Website available for descendants of WWII Kitchener Camp refugees

After the death of her mother, Clare Weissenberg inherited her father's suitcase of German letters, documents and photographs. As she was going through the materials she came across a mention of a place called the Kitchener Camp. Not being familiar with it, she dove into further research which started her on a journey to what ultimately became the Kitchener Camp project.

With the rise of the Nazis in Germany, European Jews founds themselves spread across the world. Some were relocated to concentration camps. Others escaped out of Germany, resettling in other countries. One place that Jewish refugees fled was the Kitchener Camp in England. The camp was created in early 1939 near Sandwich, Kent by influential Jews in England to house German, Austrian and Czech male refugees fleeing Nazi persecution. In all approximately 4,000 people passed through the camp between February 1939 and May 1940 when it closed. 

Through her research Clare Weissenberg discovered that her father had been a refugee at Kitchener Camp.  Clare started to connect with other descendants of Kitchener Camp refugees. In the summer of 2017 a gathering of Kitchener Camp descendants was held near the site of the camp in Sandwich. From that day came the idea of a website for descendants.

The unique thing about the camp was that inmates could only be accepted if they could show they were in transit to somewher else. Many left England for North and South America, but most went predominately to the United States. While the website has records listing all the inmates in September 1939, there are no records showing who left England and where they ended up. 

The Kitchener Camp website has been created to provide details of the men who passed through the camp. On the website you'll find a list of names, photographs, documents, letters, memories and much more. The website, originally created by Clare Weissenberg, will soon be run by the Weiner Library in London.

In addition to finding details about your ancestor -  you can help! If your ancestor passed through the camp, the Kitchener Camp project would like to hear from you. You can share photos, letters, memories and what happened to your ancestor after he left the Kitchener Camp. Read a detailed announcement with a call for documents.

What you'll find on the website

In order to be selected for the camp, men were required to provide (these requirements were set by the German Jewish authorities, not the camp management):

  • Details of their past including entire educational and employment history
  • Details of their future Plans
  • A one page CV, testimonials about their career,
  • Photocopies of degrees and medical certificates
  • and Lots of passport photos

When entering the camp, registration cards were filled out providing:

  • name
  • number of children
  • home address
  • nationality
  • birthplace
  • date of birth
  • profession
  • and whether married

On the website you'll also find group photos of the men while staying at the camp.
